what to do with space behine front seats

Looking for ideas on what do do with the space behind the the from seats in a 36 Buick 2dr business coupe. It's to small to put much of a seat there. Yet to big to leave empty. I've thought of a half depth seat, even leaving the trunk divider out and having sort of like a hatch back. But I don't really like either idea. I'm hoping someone has seen a neat idea somewhere. There is about 16+ inches between the back of the seat and the rear window, and about 26+ to the trunk divider. I will be putting speakers in the trunk divider so I don't want big ugly speaker box's back there. After all this IS a BUICK

How about some jump seats..I had an extended cab pickup that had those and it worked out well..Make em so they fold up against the sides of the car so you can haul a cooler and some chairs and such for going to car shows and picnics..

Good for occasional passengers..

Some kind of nifty lock box or little hide-away that would match the style of your interior might look neat.

I'd put a ninja or two in there.



Or maybe some fold away seats, that works too I guess. Or a nice looking box to hide gizmos and stuff in. Like throwing stars. Or maybe a speaker box.

Drive right on by this one.....too much trouble. Anything female is trouble...even threads haha

My Willys has some room too behind the front seaats and I have a feeling that it is going to be a catch all just like the quad cab back seat in my dually. That's turned into a mini hardware store with all the spare parts and service tools. haha

I would put an old style cooler back there and hold beer and soda, but the bongos would be cool too.

space

Cut an access door on the side and slide in a set of golf clubs like the
30's classics- Drive the restorers nuts.

That is a great idea too.
The fun factor would be off the charts!

In my '37 Plymouth business coupe, original equipment was a three tier steel shelf for oil, wrenches, etc on one side and the 16" spare tire with hold down bracket on the other side. The entire thing was covered with a tonneau cover with twist buttons. Behind that was a half pouch for grips (leather suitcase type gym bag) and maps. The rear window had a roller blind that hitch to a catch at the top of the window and there was a dome light over top. When I do the interior this winter, I am putting it back the same way.

I try and dig up a picture or two of the old setup and post it here.
